I am a certified middle school science teacher, and have been teaching middle school science both in the public school setting, and  online since 2014. It is very important to me that students enjoy the experience of learning about science and consequently, much effort is put into making lessons interactive, varied, and memorable. My experience allows me to focus on the importance of building relationships with my students and use those relationships to tailor lessons to their interests and abilities. I grow and become a better teacher every time I interact with my students!
> Each week assignments, vocabulary lists and games, review games, lesson slides, and notes are provided after class. All work is optional based on what the adult in charge of their education requires them to do. I am happy to grade and return any work that is turned in!

> One optional project will be provided for this specific course. This project can be as time/labor-intensive as your student wants to make them, the purpose of the project is to give students an opportunity to show their understanding of the topic. I will give them several ideas to choose from, but they also have the option to present a project idea for consideration. 

> A vocabulary quiz and a unit test are also provided for those that would like to test their knowledge in this way.
 
Learners may need to print a few handouts throughout the course, or have access to view handouts on a separate device during class. I typically used Nearpod, Kahoot, and Google Classroom for these courses, but I take the time to clearly explain and provide support for each of these!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
> We grade and/or give feedback on all work completed by the student, and a report card will be available for each student. 

> We also informally asses students by using Nearpod during lessons, and by using their verbal or chat box responses to questions and discussions during the live lesson. 
 
> Adults can access assignments and grades at all times through the link given at the beginning of the course. 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
โš ๏ธ This class does cover the endocrine system, and includes male and female endocrine glands and the hormones each gland secretes. This discussion is strictly scientific, but I do like for parents to know! โš ๏ธ

๐Ÿ“Kahoot will be used during weeks 6 & 8  as a review tool. It does not require an account.

๐Ÿ“Nearpod will be used most weeks as an interactive presentation tool. It does not require an account.
